The Route to Family Wisdom teaches the reader the process of focused meditation as a basis for exploring themes of early, particularly maternal, wisdom. It uses the concept of "genespherics" to enhance the meditation process, and provides examples of the author's transcribed meditations. Several methods for tuning in to aspects of early everyday life, such as cooking in the manner of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, are included.

About The Author

The author's meditations in her 18th century home provided the inspiration for her to write The Route to Family Wisdom, a book that will help readers develop their own ancestral meditative skills. The author has studied both genealogy and meditation for more than twenty years, and has a master's degree in psychology. She enjoys antiques, New England architecture, and historic cooking, and she has included examples of early recipes in her book. The mother of two grown children, she lives with her husband, Frank, and their cat, Peregrine, in coastal Connecticut.
